In my experience, barrel saddles do not throw YOU forward, it helps to put your seat in a more forward position (aka "go" to most barrel horses).
Otherwise, I'd say just get any type of saddle to run in that'll be comfy for whatever else you like to do. I run in a roping saddle, and I see no difference in my times between a barrel or roper. I can ride in it all day as well, comfiest saddle I've had the pleasure of sitting my lazy bum in :p haha
